As you’ve probably noticed by now, there are a lot of burger places in Oklahoma City. And if you’ve been reading my work, you know that I’ve been to about half of them. So today I’m going to tell you about The Garage, a local burger chain that popped up a few years ago.
The Garage is an automotive themed restaurant with a dozen locations not only around Oklahoma City but now in two other states as well. I personally love the theme- with a grandfather who owned a service station, I love old automotive signs and the neon that sometimes surrounds them. What I don’t like about The Garage are the tall tables that seem to be popular recently. I’m short and feel like I need a step-ladder just to get into my seat.
As for the food- it’s ok. They do have a varied menu with different types of burgers. But the menu isn’t much different from some of the other burger places around town. On my last visit I tried the Mushroom Swiss. Not bad, meat was fresh and the taste was good but I just found myself expecting more. The fries are just ok as well, not great. My daughter loves the fact that the kid’s meal comes with a bomb pop but then she is easily entertained.
So after a great build up with the décor, I’m just disappointed that the food doesn’t live up to my expectations. And with that I’m giving The Garage 4 strips of bacon, only because I really do like the service station theme.
